Simple Gnocci

This is a basic recipe for gnocci that I than add to various sauces.  This recipe counts as my egg use for the week.


2 potatoes

2 c flour

1 egg


  1. Peel potatoes and add to a pot of boiling water.  Cook the potatoes until they are tender.  Drain, cool and mash the potatoes.
  2. Combine potatoes, egg and flour.  Kneed until dough forms a ball.  Divide the dough into 4 sections.  Make each section into a long “snake.” Cut the “snake” into 1 inch pieces. Press each piece with a fork.  gnocci
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Drop the gnocci into the boiling water and cook for around 5 minutes or until the gnocci floats to the top.  Drain and serve.
  4. True, you can eat the gnocci as is.  However, I like to brown the gnocci in the oven on a cookie sheet for some sauce options.
